Identity is a tricky thing—you may think you know who you are, but there’s more to it than what you see in the mirror. On spit, our new podcast created through a partnership with DNA genetic testing company 23andMe, we explore the very meaning of identity through host Baratunde Thurston's conversations with different artists, celebrities and, of course, experts from various fields.
Launching today, spit tackles some of the biggest questions surrounding DNA testing, human connectedness and the future of genetic study—and all we needed from our celebrity guests was a little spit and curiosity! The first two episodes, released today, feature John Legend and Wyclef Jean. Both spoke not only about their identities as individuals, but also discussed the key issues of race, culture and fearlessness. You won’t want to miss these thought-provoking, raw discussions— check out the episodes here!
